Take your best shot to protect yourself, your family, your business or organization! Visit our Flu Page for more information or call us today — 314.781.2800.

To learn about the flu, check the Centers for Disease Control's influenza web site.

Beyond Flu Shots

It's never too late for your family, business or community group to protect itself from influenza. Give us a call about scheduling vaccinations against the flu, and while you're at it, ask us about the pneumonia vaccination as well.

The CDC has more information on vaccinations for pneumonia on their web site.
